As expected, those who seem to actually worship the divinity of Ronan O'Rahilly did not like our video which exposed him to the world - in his own words - on camera!
What we wanted to establish by that video is a timeline that Ronan O'Rahilly had set in place, not someone else speaking for Ronan O'Rahilly.
From this brief video (see previous post below to access it for yourself, if you have not already viewed it), Ronan O'Rahilly said that he first arrived in London "sometime in 1961". Over a period of time he claimed to have done many things after arriving in London at "sometime in 1961", and those events can only begin after "sometime in 1961" and before he started to refer back to those same events a little later on, but without saying exactly when those events took place.
Now we can start pinning his activities down to very specific dates.
Clearly the events he claimed to have associated himself with cannot have taken place before "sometime in 1961" - unless of course you want to become an O'Rahilly apologist by inferring that Ronan O'Rahilly did not know what he was talking about. We are sure that there are some anoraks out there who believe in Ronan O'Rahilly so much and a such a saint-like figure that they would make anything up to make his life fit in with their own imaginary scenario. But here we are talking about 'normally sane' individuals which seems to be a category that many anoraks remove themselves from.
But Ronan O'Rahilly also admitted to much more than the year of his arrival in London, when he answered some very specific questions about his religious and political views. We know that the interview was recorded at some time in 1966, and it shows a slide into a chaotic way of irrational thinking. Some might call it delusional insanity.
Ronan O'Rahilly claimed in 1966 to be a Roman Catholic, and indeed a Roman Catholic service was conducted in front of his coffin when he died in 2020. So no change there, except that the Priest conducting the affair admitted that he knew very little about Ronan O'Rahilly which accounts for the Priest then reading a totally bogus script relating to the totally fictitious life of a lie that Ronan O'Rahilly claimed to have lived.
Most of those lies belong between 1961 and 1966 when Ronan O'Rahilly claimed on camera to be an anarchist: that is, someone hostile to the idea of law and order and government itself.
That is not how he thought when he first arrived in London in 1961, but that is how he morphed into a world of self-delusion by 1966 with the support of a band of anoraks who imbibed his lies and deceit. When he arrived in 1961, and certainly into 1964, Ronan O'Rahilly tried to fit in with the Establishment, until he came to see that the Establishment was using him. Ronan O'Rahilly was also a part of his father's family business in 1964, and his father was trying desperately hard to work with the governments of both the Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom in order to further his own export business.
It was after the October 15, 1964 UK General Election when the Tory government lost power that Ronan O'Rahilly began to invent, or go along with a fictitious tale that was being spun to hide the real story about Radio Caroline. Don Pierson from Eastland, Texas was fed this tale of nonsense and to his own detriment, he swallowed it hook, line and sinker. But Ronan came to believe that anyone could tell a big lie and get away with it, and of course, that included Ronan O'Rahilly. But Ronan O'Rahilly did not realize that by doing so he was stepping out of the real world into a world of insanity - which was paved with drugs.
In other words, Ronan O'Rahilly began the slide down a slippery slope which led to his own mental oblivion. In his own make believe world nothing was real but himself.
It is the real world that we are focusing on, a world which Ronan O'Rahilly denied its existence. It was a world dominated by aristocracy, and aristocracy was behind every part of the story behind the creation of Radio Caroline. Its driving force was another Irishman from the Republic of Ireland and his name is Charles Orr Stanley. He shared the job of creating Radio Caroline with his son named John.
However, Charles Orr Stanley was not in the business of starting and running radio stations, he was in the business of making equipment to be sold to those who wanted to run them. There were plenty of candidates, and aside from the delusion of Allan Crawford, the rest of them were not into pop music but local Establishment politics tied to local newspapers that belonged to big international media barons.
In fact, the entire 'Swinging Sixties' nonsense is part of the 'Big Lie', it never happened. What did happen was a rivalry within the British Royal Family that was represented in the lives of two sisters, and one of them was Queen Elizabeth II. It a 'Big Political Lie' mainly pushed by men who were at least a generation older than Ronan O'Rahilly. While Ronan's father was kissing-up to that British Establishment, Ronan was trying to topple it - until he threw in the towel and turned his back on all government.
Ronan was an anarchist with a diminished hope in the back of his mind that maybe, just maybe, the Pope in Rome was really the representative of God on earth, and maybe, just maybe, like the Italian Mafia mob leaders, no matter what he did here on Earth, everything would be sorted for him once he got to Heaven.
On the other hand, being sane realists, we don't believe what Ronan believed, and it is our mission to explain what really took place in the Nineteen Sixties.
